Any idea why they exposed the tracks like that? It's jolly well annoying in WoT, even my Church 7 with its relatively armoured tracks still loses them easily. Had a match a week ago where it lost it's track 4-5 times in a row, in the space of 2 minutes simply from arty shells.

To make traveling over trenches easier perhaps.

But surely having the top exposed wouldn't be of any help.

Probably correct on the traversing the trenches theory.

So that it would be easier to clean mud and... body parts off the tracks...

Exposed tracks mean easier repairs. A huge fault of the A7V was that the tracks were completely covered by the tank.

Description

The Tank, Heavy, TOG 1 was a prototype British heavy tank produced in the early part of the Second World War in the expectation that battlefields might end up like those of the First World War and was designed so it could cross churned-up countryside and trenches. A single prototype was built but interest faded with the successful performance of another cross country design, the Churchill tank, and the mobile war that was being fought.
